Enfield Women’s Centre (EWC) is a registered charity (No 1002117). We aim to explore and provide services which will enable women to achieve fulfillment in their lives. These will range from their physical and mental health needs, training, recreational and creative skills. We try to assist women via information, advice or referral on a range of issues including; relationships, violence against women and girls, training, health, through courses, workshops, one-to-one, social activities, etc. The ethos at EWC is to support women to work towards economic independence and to become stakeholders in their own community rather than passive recipients of services. In particular, we aim to work with women who are disadvantaged and marginalised.
We have three part-time members of staff who are supported by volunteers. We may from time to time have to close the office dependent on availability of people and also any activities we may be holding off-site.
To keep our clients, supporters and members up to date we operate a mailing list, sending out regular information about our services and events as well as the 'Happenings' newsletter

Enfield Womens Centre is always looking for ideas for new events and services that suit the needs of our clients and the women of Enfield. We are always open to ideas for events and services from our clients and will take all serious suggestions under consideration. We are a small organisation with limited funding so some things may not be possible (unless additional funding can be found).
The centre has gone through many changes over the years but has remained true to its commitment to support women and their families through a variety of services and activities.
Set up in the early 1980’s, by a group of women at the then Middlesex Poly (later University) led by Vicki Scarlett, Enfield Women’s Centre as we know it, was registered as a charity in 1991. Vicki was instrumental in obtaining the current premises for the delivery of activities and services to women.
Our vision then was the same as it is now – to support vulnerable and disadvantaged women and their families living in the borough of Enfield and to provide a range of activities and services which all women feel able to access to enable them to have fun, make changes in their lives, through learning new skills and work towards economic independence.
